Young american men today don't know/do nuthin' but play video games......
....and smart young american women "aren't interested". What kind of husbands/fathers will these guys be? It's NOT 'attractive', if ya know what I mean.....

3. Its that damned Laura Croft's fault
She's more woman (nudge nudge, wink wink) than most of those guys will ever meet in real life.

9. I'm 30
I spent my day canvassing for signature to get a local democratic candidate on the ballot. I'm decent looking, have a very good job, and always have treated women with respect. I'm single.

One of the guys I got a signature from is a guy I grew up about 2 years younger He's fat, washing cars for a living, and has 3 DUIs. I know right now he spends half his time playing video games.

His girlfriend was hot. Please tell me that its all the guys fault right now in our society.

When I tell girls in my generation how active I am with the party or other volunteer groups they think I'm a sucker and head off to a bar.

:rofl:

14. You've just not "hooked up" in the correct 'circles'......
Good, kind, and honest (and being able to see your pecker over your beer belly) is :thumbsup:

Of course, the larger your beer belly the larger your pecker needs to be.....it's all about "ratio's"

:rofl:

16. My dating life was alot better
when I was playing video games and going to the bars.

I've been volunteering for 3 years and active politcally for 1. Women in the 25-35 year age think that is wierd. The ones that don't are married.

18. "washing cars for a living" - Did he have to pass a drug test to get the job?
Seriously, a friend's 27yo son had to take one to wash cars at a car lot. :crazy:

21. I have no idea
Nice guy, don't have a problem with him personally, however he sat in his basement and did drugs while I went to college. He than got 3 DUIs. He's cleaned up a little, however the hot girlfriend made me laugh.

Any women who critcise men right now I just laugh at, your just as fucking bad.

11. And they used to do nuthin but drink or
race cars or play poker or chase women or any of a cazillion things young men do before they're ready to get in a serious relationship.

Maybe the problem is young women need to get interested in something besides a career and a man.

13. Yes it a generalization, but it's always been true;
Rock and roll would ruin the world, jungle music as it was called. " Kids today don't want to work" ; well kids never wanted to work from when time began, and a thousand other cliches. Most will step up to the plate when the time comes; they have no choice, and if you haven't given them a good role model to learn from...shame on you.

15. People who make generalizations about people who play video games....
....aren't attractive either, and probably make much worse wives/mothers than those who do.

20. respectfully...
bite me and mind your own damn head. we've all got our hobbies. yours apparently is spewing ignorant shit of which you know very little about, save for a nice, snappy personal anecdote you'll probably have just for this occasion about how some young gamer did you or someone you know wrong.

spare me.

23. Locking
This is a rather broad brush statement about young men and not really appropriate for gd.

Cheers,
